Had reservations to go to Fogo De Chao tonight for dinner to celebrate vday/our anniversary coming up BUT I’m such a home-body... decided to cook NY Strips, red bliss mashed potatoes and green beans instead. Aside from the gym today, definitely one of my better decisions 🖤
It may not be my usual veggie packed breakfast, but this @farmerjomuesli paleo granola is the perfect breakfast accompaniment to camping and craft. Final road test before we hit the road for 12 months. Only two weeks to go... If you’d like to follow our journey, I’ve started a separate Instagram, Facebook and blog to document our travels - @our.family.gap.year The countdown is on! #easypaleo#paleowithouttrying#healthybutyummy
Nothing like a crisp chip and some roasted red pepper hummus! Most people don't know this, but I'm a chip fiend. Stress? Chips please. Hormonal changes (you know the ones)? Chips please. Hungry at the grocery store? Chips please. It verges on uncontrollable if I don't separate conscious, rational thought from feeling and desire.
HOW DO I FIGHT THIS?
I plan ahead and have support. My partner Dan is not afraid to smack them out of my hand or have a throwdown with me at the grocery store. We make sure we have healthy snacks available such as trail mix, dips with veggies, healthy homemade goodies, and protein/nut and seed bars for when we are in a bind. I try not to go to the store hungry and resort to other stress management tools, such as working out. Food doesn't have to be an outlet if you don't let it be.
Is food continuously your outlet? Are you struggling to make a change? Contact me for help in building healthier lifestyle habits.

This may be my new favorite snack! Mushrooms have so many health benefits but can be a desired taste. This recipe is amazing. You can enjoy raw or sauté for a warm snack.
1. Purchase some fresh local shitake mushrooms
2. Rinse well
3. Add some fresh squeezed lemon juice
4. Drizzle with some healthy oil of your choice and let it soak in for a minute or two.
5. Sprinkle with salt or hemp hearts
6. Try not to eat the entire bowl

Beautiful pink dragonfruit💗 so sweet and delicious. Im in love.
I love tofu!! My mom is even coming around to liking It ☺️ she eats some of mine now when I make it, which I don’t mind because I’ll gladly make her tofu so she doesn’t eat as much fish ☺️☺️
Baked tofu squares, curly noodles with a Japanese spice seasoning, baked cabbage, and avocado 😁
Light diet for a happy digestive system.
1 cup organic salad spring mix
Half a pear diced
1 cup red quinoa
1 beet sliced
2 pinches of alfalfa sprouts
Makes 2 servings
Raspberry sauce would blend well but the subtle notes of pear, red quinoa and beet make a very fresh from the garden (no extras needed) flavor.

STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP 👊 There’s so much negative self talk towards peoples mindset of eating, just quickly let’s address a few of these. Does eating Nutella make you a bad person? NO IT MAKES YOU HUMAN! Does getting sugar cravings make you an alien? NO, WHERE NOT ROBOTS! And will eating Tim tams make you fat? NO 🤦♂️ now all that being said you can’t just mindlessly eat all the time and not be aware of how many calories your consuming. Also I don’t advocate eating high sugar diets because I know my body and my clients bodies run more efficient and with more clarity when they consume Nutrient dense whole foods and more of a balance ✌️3 TAKE HOMES FROM THIS POST 1. Track your calories so that you can schedule in some chocolate and not have a negative Connotation towards it. 2. You are a human being, be kinder to yourself 3. GO BUY SOME NUTELLA TODAY AND EAT THE SHIT OUT OF IT 😂✌️

Yesterday, while at Costco with my daughter, we tasted a sample of creamy tomato basil soup. It was so yummy! I told her to go read the label and grab some if the sugar/carb content was reasonable. She said “mom, I bet you can just recreate it your own way, with coconut milk!” So, today, that’s exactly what I did. My version is keto friendly and whole30 compliant. I even added one drop of basil essential oil to kick that flavor up a notch. This soup took about 20 minutes to make and does not disappoint. 🍅🍅🍅 To make, you will need:
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 shallot, chopped
1 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
1 can full fat coconut milk
Fresh Basil (about 5 leaves) rolled and cut into strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
In a soup pot heat olive oil and add garlic and shallots. Sauté for one or two minutes until oil is fragrant and shallots begin to soften. Add most of the basil (save some to garnish the soup). Add tomatoes and chicken broth and cook through until bubbly. With an emersion blender, blend the soup until well combined and emulsified. Stir in coconut milk. Add salt, and pepper to your liking.
I like things spicy, so I added some red chili pepper flakes to mine. I am also learning to cook with essential oils so I added one drop of basil essential oil to the whole pot to enhance the flavor. 🍅🍅🍅 #whole30#wholefood#foodie#nosugaradded#diabetic#diabetes#typeonediabetes#mealprep#keto#essentialoils
Home made coconut yogurt in the instant pot w/o the yogurt button💫
The base of this recipe I found in the ketotarian book I posted about yesterday.
The recipe 👇🏻
•2 cans of full fat coconut milk (I like to use the Thai Kitchen brand)
•1 tbsp agar flakes
•2 probiotic capsules taken apart
•Combine milk & agar flakes in the instant pot. Set the pot to sauté, bring mixture to a boil. Using a sterilized utensil whisk until the agar flakes are dissolved.
•Once the mixture has boiled & reaches 180F, turn the pot off.
•Allow the mixture to cool to 110F to 115F to allow for fermentation.
•When the milk has cooled, break apart the capsules & add the probiotic powder to the pot, stir with a wooden spoon. Metal will deactivate the probiotic.
•If you have the yogurt button it sets it to the ideal temperature for fermentation.
•If you don’t have the yogurt button, after you add the probiotic, close the lid & wrap the instant pot in a towel. Place somewhere warmish in your house (not near a window). Allow to ferment for 24 hours. If you want a more tangy sour like tasting yogurt, leave longer. When it’s done it should smell tangy and the consistency should be like yogurt! I like mine more sour so I can use it as a thickener in sauces. If you want it to be sweet you can add whatever sweetener you want before or after the fermentation.

Chia pudding three ways 🍯🍫🍋 The general directions for each are the same with the only difference being a few of the ingredients. Use full fat coconut milk as the base rather than light coconut milk or other nut milks. I’m telling you it yields the best results!! Out of these three puddings my favorite is probably the chocolate or the honey vanilla with orange 🥰🥰 Save these recipes if you find them useful!
🍯Honey vanilla with orange🍯
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup honey
1 orange, juiced*
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Dash of salt
*NOTE: Using the pulp as well as the juice makes this extra tasty!
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp coco powder
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
🍋Raspberry & Lemon🍋
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 lemon, juiced*
1 cup raspberries
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
*NOTE: If you don’t like sour, only use a small squeeze of lemon.
1. Place chia seeds in medium sized bowl.
2. Blend remaining ingredients together.
3. Pour liquid over chia seeds and stir.
4. Let sit for 10 minutes then stir again.
5. Place in refrigerator overnight and enjoy in the morning!
Hearty vegan beetroot bolognese 🍅 the flavours and textures in this dish make it a weekly must have 🗓️ - inspired by @thefirstmess, with some modifications ... Enjoy! 🍄🥕🤗 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2/3 cup lentils
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp chilli flakes / 2 chillies
2 tins chopped tomatoes
2 tsp flax seeds
4 tsp miso (red, barley)
2 tbsp tamari
4 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 packet flat leaf parsley
200g pasta of choice (I use @explorecuisine edamame and mung bean fettuccine)
1. Turn oven to 180°C. Chop beetroots in half and place in a baking dish with water to the top of the beetroots. Cook until soft (about 1 hour). 2. Chop carrots and boil until slightly soft (about 10 - 15 minutes). 3. Cook lentils for 15 minutes, until they just start to soften, but are not soft. They will cook more later.
4. Once the above are cooked, chop onions, garlic, and tomatoes and then put the mushrooms into a food processor to chop very finely. Then put it all into a pan with the chilli, thyme and herbs and cook for about 5 minutes, turning regularly.
5. Add the carrots and beetroot to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes.
6. Add the tins of tomato and the lentils and then cook at a simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes, until the sauce has started to thicken.
7. Add the miso to hot water in a cup and stir until it is dissolved in the water. Add the miso to the thickened sauce with the red wine vinegar and tamari. Keep at a simmer until the sauce is thick again.
8. Add the flax seeds to thicken a little more.
9. Cook the pasta to taste and then add the sauce and parsley to serve.

Do you have any must haves when you travel? Something you can't go without for even a day or two? Here is mine 💕 I literally wake up and jump out of bed to start my day with one of these 😂
I lost my voice last night due to some kind of viral infection, so I’m tending to myself *extra carefully* today. A quick soup of homemade turkey bone broth (pulled from the freezer), pork meatballs, celery, red onion, and carrot with a sprinkling of cayenne and parsley will help. Fresh Meyer lemon juice from the tree outside for extra vitamin C. 🥄✨
